IMT Exercise Player

The Incident Management Team Functional Exercise (IMTX) is a one, or multi, day Exercise that provides Incident Command System (ICS) Incident Management Team (IMT) members an opportunity to practice and improve their collective ability to function as a team to manage a simulated incident response, as well as refresh and extend their individual ICS position-specific functional skills.

This course is intended for U.S. EPA and U.S. Coast Guard personnel that have successfully completed Key Leadership Position training and who will be called upon to assume those positions within an ICS organization.  Command Post support staff, such as GIS specialists, Community Involvement Coordinators and Information Technology specialists may also be involved to improve the realism and efficiency of exercise play.

Each exercise simulates one operational period, usually 24 hours, with a particular focus on the production of a Situation Report (SitRep) and conduct of planning cycle (Planning ‘P’) activities that are needed to produce an Incident Action Plan (IAP) for the next Operational Period.  

Additional activities and accomplishments that are typically exercised include: 

-Develop, approve and issue press releases and other public information work products

-Conduct simulated press briefings

-Process, interpret and internally disseminate (simulated) environmental monitoring data

-Gather (simulated) situational data and process it to produce situational intelligence work products, such as maps, for internal and (simulated) external customers

-Perform check-in of Command and General Staff and track all resources

-Develop, process, and approve resource requests

-Order and assign resources (simulated)

-Coordinate with the Regional Emergency Operational Center (usually, this is simulated, but sometimes, with planning, the REOC is staffed and participates in exercise play.)

-Process cost information to develop a daily Burn Rate

-Receive and process Funding Documentation

-Manage resources to accomplish tactical operations (simulated) 

The exercises are designed to be conducted in a no-fault atmosphere with senior IMT members present for mentoring purposes. Actual exercise play is scheduled for 8 hours or longer; until the Exercise Director determines the exercise objectives have been met. 

Course evaluation will consist of a Hot Wash and participant-completed feedback forms.  Additional evaluation tools, such as Exercise Evaluation Guides (EEGs) may be developed and utilized, if requested in advance.

IMT Exercises are ordered and scheduled by Regions through the ERTP Contracting Officer Representative (COR)

The classroom version of the course may require more than one room.  

The virtual version of this course is delivered via MS TEAMs, one day per Incident Management Team.
